People with dementia or Alzheimer's love the feel of these smooth wooden shapes. That natural interest leads to a variety of activities that challenge the senses with this classic Montessori activity.
The Mystery Bag consists of ten pairs of wooden shapes including cubes, rectangular cubes, prisms, spheres and egg shapes in a cloth bag. The experience of looking at a piece, interpreting it and then finding its match is very different than simply seeing the object. This activity provides a connection between the two. It stimulates the sense of touch by eliminating distractions and helps with cognitive function through the matching process.
